Re: Feminist critique of sociobiology...critiqued

For those interested in reading further about the critique of
sociobiologists, I just came across an article which has some short
points to make, plus a more extensive list of references for anyone
interested in following up. It's an article by Adrienne Zihlman called
"Misreading Darwin on Reproduction: Reductionism in Evolutionary Theory."
It's in a volume called Conceiving the New World Order, edited by Faye
Ginsburg and Rayna Rapp, about the politcs and anthropology of
reproduction. There's other interesting stuff in there, which varies
considerably in terms of explicit political content and use of jargon.
But the Zihlman article is the last, and makes some interesting points.
